For his NFL career, he’s completed 63.9 percent of his passes for eight touchdowns http://www.lionslockerroom.com/authentic-tavon-wilson-jersey , seven interceptions and a passer rating of 86.2. He was most recently released from the Raiders in May after spending just two months with the squad.As for Josh Johnson, the 33-year-old quarterback has been the definition of a journeyman since entering the league as a fifth-round pick for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Though he has spent time on nine different NFL teams, he has only started eight total games. For his career, he’s completed just 55.2 percent of his snaps for eight touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

The top two tight ends on the team Womens Quandre Diggs Jersey , Levine Toilolo with 21 catches and Luke Wilson with 13 catches, are both set to become free agents in March.Quinn hinted that the Lions could be looking at a tight end in the first round of the draft, where Detroit has the eighth overall pick. The last time the Lions used a high first-round pick on a tight end it was Ebron, who disappointed in Detroit but then flourished in Indianapolis last year. That might make some Lions fans skittish about taking a top tight end again, but Quinn sounds like he may do it.
